Students at Astrea Academy Trust school Longsands Academy in St Neots are celebrating their long-awaited results, in a year in which schools were closed and exams cancelled.  

Despite this, students have shown great courage and commitment to succeed – and can now take their next exciting steps with pride. 

Results this year have been determined by teachers, following a rigorous process designed to ensure students have the grades they merit and are able to move on to their next stage of study, training or work.  

Neil Owen, Principal of Longsands Academy, part of Astrea Academy Trust, said: “I am immensely proud of our students – their resilience and effort have paid off and I wish them all the best as they move onto their next stage.  

“I would also like to pay tribute to our staff, and to parents and carers for their support to both school, and to the students.”
